When you develop your household budget, the line item for utilities and energy costs is significant. Many people look for solutions such as smart thermostats and upgraded equipment. However, many people don't know that they can choose a vendor other than Columbia Gas of Virginia. Alternatives like Nordic Energy are worth exploring because they give you more control over your household expenses.

As an Alternative Retail Electric Supplier (ARES) and Alternative Gas Supplier (AGS), we serve customers in nine states by giving them a choice between Nordic and their traditional energy provider.

At Nordic Energy, we believe in saving energy whenever possible; it's good for the planet and your budget. Here are a few tips to help you conserve.
If the light fixtures in your home are several years old, consider replacing them with newer models. Modern equipment has a focus on the efficient use of energy.
Clean or replace the air filters in your HVAC system on a regular schedule. Clean filters do a better job of cleaning the air, and your heating and air system doesn't have to work as hard to move air through new filters.
It's tempting to leave devices like computers and printers plugged in and powered on. However, they draw power even when in sleep mode, so turn them off or disconnect them when you're not actively using them.
Use natural resources whenever possible. Open blinds or shades to let sunlight flow in, open windows when the weather is pleasant, and use fans to draw in air and reduce reliance on your HVAC system.
